Whether it’s a hobby, a way to supplement income, or a source of healthy food, communities around the world benefit from well-made gardens. Convoy of Hope provided training, seeds, and other supplies to children and senior citizens in one Chicago community so they could start their own vegetable gardens.
“They’ve been harvesting the cucumbers, the tomatoes, and the different things that they’ve planted,” said Kehnide Moodie of the Chicago City Life Center. “We’re just really grateful for Convoy of Hope.”
For community members with concerns about violence in their area, these new gardens provide a reliable source of produce within the safety of their own home. For younger members of the community, the gardens provide an opportunity to hone valuable skills. For others, they are a chance to save money that would otherwise be spent on groceries. For all who participated, the gardens bring hope.
Convoy is grateful for partners like you who make it possible for those in need to grow hope around the world.
